Fun in the Mail

I have been having such fun getting the mail lately even though I have to step out in the VERY COLD Iowa temperatures.  My mail box has had a couple bills but the fun mail FAR out weighs the bills.

A week or so ago I asked blog readers to send me one 2 1/2″ strip of white printed fabric for a quilt we are making for an upcoming publication.  Everyone who sends a strip will be put into a drawing to receive a free copy of the publication.  Someone wrote concerned that it wouldn’t fit into a regular envelope but it does.  Just a few short days later…the letters started coming in.  We were so excited.  There is still time to send yours if you’d like to included in the fun.  Here’s my address:  Jo Kramer  1077 County Road V68  Waucoma, IA 52171

Thank you-Thank you to everyone who has send us a little goodie in the mail.  You readers are the best!!


I also got a box in the mail from Ila.  If you don’t know Ila, she’s one of our blog readers who we’ve adopted into our family….she’s just a gem.  Opening a box from Ila is like opening a Christmas present.


There were goodies galore.  Scraps for me and a few white strips for our quilt project along with a box of truffles that I’ll share.


There was also the cutest little toy for Ruby.  It’s got a tennis ball type body with rope arms.  She’s sniffing it for now….not quite sure what to what to think of it.  That’s her typical response to new toys- a sniff or two ignoring it-then in a day or two it’s a new best friend.


I have another box-with something WONDERFUL inside- that I got in the mail that I am dying to share with you but those truffles from Ila are calling my name!!  Stop back and I’ll share…the box, not the truffles!!
